Buckwheat Blinis with Caviar & Smoked Salmon
For this recipe you will need:
To prepare this recipe:
Preheat the oven to 400
Warm milk in a saucepot over medium heat. Pour into a large bowl. When lukewarm, add sugar and yeast, mixing well to dissolve yeast. Stir in 1 cup all-purpose flour; cover bowl and set in warm place until dough doubles in volume (about 1-1/2 hour). Combine butter, egg yolks and salt. Stir the dough down and add butter-egg mixture, along with buckwheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat egg whites until stiff, then gently fold into batter. Cook batter, one tablespoonful per blini, on a hot buttered non-stick skillet. Flip blini to brown second side after batter appears set on top. Cover blini with a towel and hold in 200 F oven until serving. Top blini with caviar, smoked salmon & sour cream or creme fraiche.
